Subsequently, question is, what is the difference between glaze and stain? Stains contain a binder, usually a thin oil-based varnish to lock in the color and to allow multiple coats without lifting previous coats of stain. Glazes are virtually the same as stains but they contain a lot more pigment with a lot less binder or no binder at all and are usually layered between coats of finish.
Secondly, what is a Cabinet glaze?
Glaze is a transparent or semi-transparent coating that is applied after a cabinet has been painted or stained. Glazing kitchen cabinets adds depth and color to the finish and often beats the cost to paint cabinets.
Can you glaze over stained wood?
You can use a glaze to add color effects to a finished piece of wood; however, applying glaze to unfinished wood isn't recommended, even if the wood is stained. The glaze creates unsightly blotches and patches of uneven color. You can apply gel stain over stained, unfinished wood, though, to deepen the color.
